Shopping in Bangkok....what do you like ? Thanks !

Hi we are heading to Bangkok in January 2012. We have never been before to Thailand. We will have already been to Laos and Cambodia before our visit to Bangkok. We have visited Cambodia 2 years ago and purchased mainly t-shirts.

Just wondering what is Bankgkok shopping known for and what do you like to buy there when you have visited. We have two teenage children who love all the branded items of clothes..eg nike, billabong etc.

Any suggestions would be great. Cheers Franji

Then go to Central World , Siam Paragon Mall and MBK. If not for brands name go to Jatujak market. These places can go by BTS and MRT.

Jeans in mbk! They have cool t-shirts in mbk aswell. Not just the typical tourist stuff but also local design. You have to look around a bit to find the unique ones cause many shops sells same same

Lots of fancy malls in the city centre. Not very cheap for original branded goods though.

Favorites include Siam Paragon, Terminal 21, the Emporium, Central World Plaza etc. All easily accessible by Skytrain (or taxi which is cheap as well- just insist on using the meter unless you want to get riped off).
